Goal: To be honest, I just want to play the Starcraft 2 Campaign on Ultra settings and not have a slight bit a lag is all. I'm sure other games will end up being played on fairly high settings just fine with the composition i put together. I would like to computer to be SLI ready but not going to do SLI immediately. Same with RAM, upgradeable up to ~20gb but not initially. I have thought of doing RAID, but also that won't be immediate. This is what I have quoted from a computer store I went to:
Motherboard: Intel DP55WB 1156 2PCI/2PCe/R-SATAx6/Audio7.1/GLAN/DDR3x4
DIMMs Kingston (RAM): 2048MB 128x64 240Pin DDR3 1333MHz
Graphics Card: 1.0GB PCIX 16X eVGA GeForce GTX465
Processor: Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950
Power Supply: Something thats between 700W-1100W (brought to my attention SLI in the future would require a beefier power supply).
Tower Case: Just a full case, no real preference except that it's a full case. And I could care less for fancy lights, its whats in the inside that matters to me.
Now I'm not going to go into internal hard drives, keyboards, monitors, or cd/dvd/bluray drives (i think that covers everything else). I'd be perfectly fine with a stock keyboard and using my LCD tv as my monitor via HDMI cable until I buy a decent LED screen on black friday and I can figure out the internal hard drive and cd/dvd/bluray drives for myself.
Oh yeah, the place that quoted me gave the number $1475. I honestly don't see myself paying anywhere near that. Is this a good composition? And my last question was what about wiring and fans? Do I need to look at those also? And anyone could give me any maintenence tips for caring for my computer, it'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for the helps guys.
